in fact not the subject at all at the republican convention in tampa in august. as mitt romney was trying to win the presidentee again, george w. bush was really a recluse. i think now that the election is over the republicans lost. he wants to have a role in one of his causes. immigration is a passion he shares with his brother jeb, former governor of florida who is thinking of his own political future and possibly a white house run and wants to help in the reset of the republican party which will include taking a serious look at actually finally engaging on immigration reform. jon: fair to say hispanics did not exactly flock to mitt romney this time around. george w. bush did pretty well with them both four years ago and eight years ago. >> reporter: very well, he got about 41% in his last election, that is a number republicans are going to have to meet in order to win the demographics of a presidential run and get a coalition that gets you the map to win the white house. 71-27, which it was this time is not going to get you the white house. you have to be upwards of 40%, possibly in fu

have that are quite legitimate. for example, mitt romney, not to bring him up again, but you may remember mitt romney. he paid 13.9% on $20 million in earnings. i look at that and i asked why i am paying three times as much. megyn: capital gains tax rate is different from the income tax rate in this country. on social security he a lower rate -- [talking over each other] megyn: president clinton lowered the capital gains rate. there is no correlation between its relation to investment income and earn income. megyn: why demonize the rich? the mortgage meltdown was a nightmare. but why demonize all of the rich? >> i hope to be rich one day. i aspire to. i would love to be a billionaire. i think people have admiration for the ones who follow the rules and who actually earn what they may. but when someone basically sits on their assets and gets 13.9% of the tax rate, i think that frustrates people. megyn: but that is legal. are you saying it's morally wrong?

to mitt romney or republicans because those three points said we don't know republicans. we don't have relationships with with them. so, we'll just stay home. i submit to you they probably stayed home. they didn't vote for republicans. >> so, but how do you get african-americans, a group that is traditionally identified as democratic. 73% of asian voters and the stereotype is different for african-american or hispanic voters. they're all voting democratic. what is is it about the republican party that could possibly win these people over? >> well, the fact is and i've said this publicly before. i don't allow the republican party to lead me on issues that i thought were important to the black community and that's not to say they agree with me on everything, but when i was in college, i wanted colleges and universities to have a seat at the republican table. so i had conferences for them. i wanted black small business owners. latino. to have access and relationships to the democratic of department. federal agencies to understanding the contracting process. i think there are things you ca

things for people over 55. and the fact that even paul ryan and mitt romney ran away from entitlement cuts in paul ryan's budget in the last election i think is a sign of where the american public is. they do want the rich to pay their fair share in taxes, but they really don't like a lot of the entitlement cuts. >> that's a fair point. that's a fair point. >> the entitlements affect everybody, to some extent. >> look. in response to what you were just saying about the fact these savings don't really kick in for ten years. that say legitimate point. look what we did in 1982. tip o'neil sat down with the most conservative president and one of the most liberal speakers of the house. when they reached that deal, today, we are reaping huge savings from that, so those savings ten years, 20 years, 30 years from now, those are going to be enormous. the problem is we keep punting every time we come to this and the most important factor in the budget is the fact that we got 80 million baby boomers that will be retiring in the next 20 years. >> as we found out, new immigrants aren't having as m

they actually dig into the middle class? >> that's right. and what the romney campaign tried to do with a similar style proposal. and in fact the democratic group third way said if they got a $35,000 cap and excluded charitable deductions, they might be able to reach that $800 billion target. that is however not lowering rates. keeping them where they are today. so some folks have crunched these numbers, but it's tough to reach that and as you said, this is not dealing with the white house saying we want to raise those rates. >> they say nonstarter. which means it's really not meeting in the middle. look at the other parts of this proposal. $600 billion in health saving, which would include changes to medicare. not specifically laid out. 300 billion and other mandatory savings. 300 billion in further discretionary savings. what exactly are we talking about there? >> we have these bumper sticker top lines, when aids are pressed they say, we can increase the medicare eligibility age which the white house has backed from 65 to 67. perhaps means testing in some of those mandatory cuts.

perry wanted and was mocked for it. unfortunately by mitt romney. or the people that have been here 20 years as newt gingrich said put them on a path to citizenship. in other words the gop made a mockery out of dealing with hispanic immigrants and i think that's a crucial point in their defeat. >> there's no question that the way that the gop is approaching this immigration issue is similar to generations ago they approached affirmtive action with the black community. these are turn offs when you don't have a clear discussion what a low wage income earner needs. especially on this question because they have family members that are here illegally. larry that's not the major problem we're seeing today with the latino community and the hispanics especially those coming from mexico. this community of people of the last generation have come in and adopted this policy if you will that there's nothing wrong with government dependency. one question to say do they come in and work hard. they work hard and work hard at a low wage. they are open territory important the democrats to say let's unio
